Untouched is a Merlin/Arthur vid by Solanyxe (2:55 min). It was a nominee in the 2008 Camelot Music Video Awards in the category 'Best Editing'. All the vids that recontextualized otherwise innocent clips to make Merlin/Arthur have sex or lusting after each other were put in the 'Editing' category and the winner in that category unsurprisingly was one of these vids.

Summary: Arthur and Merlin both feeling 'untouched'. A tribute to the chemistry between a certain warlock and a certain prince.

By January 2009 YouTube had removed the sound[1] and Solanyxe thought about taking it down because "without music, somehow the video leaves me 'untouched'"[2] but she kept the vid up anyway and made a streaming version available at imeem. Since then imeem has closed down but YouTube must have restored the sound because currently it's working (as of August 2010).

Comments

  • "I have to say that your videos are probably the best on here. The picture quality and the way you edit the clips with the music is extremely clever. In fact - I was no fan of the Arthur/Merlin pairing thing, but I think you have turned me !" (yumyumtoffeenutlatte , YouTube)
  • "One thing that's missing though, is.... WHEN WILL THEY KISS? :)" (NickKh, YouTube)
Solanyxe's reply: "Thank you! :D You're completely right - the kiss is still missing. When will they kiss, you ask? Tomorrow, when I upload my new M/A fanvid."
  • "Hear that? That hissing sound? That's the screen smoking where I just touched it. That's how friggin HOT this vid was." (myrmidryad, YouTube)
